A devastating and deadly bombing in the Afghan capital Saturday was intended as a message to President Donald Trump, a Taliban spokesman revealed.
A Taliban fighter detonated an ambulance filled with explosives in Kabul Saturday, murdering over a hundred people and injuring at least 235 others. This weekend’s bombing, the worst attack on the Afghan capital in months, is said to be in response to the Trump administration’s decision to send additional troops to Afghanistan, aid Afghan security forces, and conduct frequent air strikes against the radical Islamic terrorists operating in the region, according to Reuters.
“The Islamic Emirate has a clear message for Trump and his hand kissers,” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said. “If you go ahead with a policy of aggression and speak from the barrel of a gun, do not expect Afghans to grow flowers in response.”
Saturday’s tragic bombing comes on the heels of two other fatal terrorist attacks orchestrated by the Taliban and the Islamic State. Taliban gunmen raided the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul last weekend, killing 22 people and injuring many more. Several ISIS gunmen and suicide bombers then set off a car bomb outside a children’s charity Tuesday. Both incidents resulted in deadly shootouts with local police that lasted for hours.
